Nuclear Chemistry: What is Nuclear Chemistry?

What is Nuclear Chemistry? Nuclear Chemistry is the chemistry and reactions involving the nucleus of an atom. Nuclear reactions tend to release a lot of energy than normal chemical reactions. Nuclear reactions involve splitting the nucleus of a heavy atom(nuclear fission), coming together of smaller nuclei(nuclear fusion), or even changing the protons in a nucleus(artificial…

Catalyst Chemistry: what is Catalyst in Chemistry?

Catalyst in Chemistry is defined as a substance that alters the rate of a chemical reaction but remains unchanged at the end of the reaction. A catalyst is a substance that speeds up the rate of reactions but it does that by affecting the activation energy of the reaction. Activation energy is the minimum amount…

How to Balance Chemical Equations

Balancing Chemical Equations involves understanding concepts and learning basic skills required in Chemistry. Though balancing chemical equations is very simple however it requires practice. Chemical equations are required to be balanced because a balanced chemical equation demonstrates and verifies the law of conservation of mass or matter. The law of conservation of matter states that…

What is Le Chatelier’s Principle and Chemical equilibrium?

Le Chatelier’s principle and chemical equilibrium is a concept that is usually discussed in Chemistry. Some chemical reactions are reversible and can attain equilibrium. Chemical equilibrium is a state of a system (i.e chemical reaction) when the rate of forward reaction equals the rate of backward reaction. Please recall that a reversible reaction is a…
